Watermelon Art

Watermelon carving from Vid Nikolic on Vimeo.

I came across this video over on and it's so cool. I'd love to have a talent like this, to be able to turn something ordinary into something so beautiful.

So I saw this jacket today

And I'm kinda in love with it. I'm not a big fan of the classic style denim jacket, it just reminds me of being a kid- I used to wear them a lot when I was younger. But this one is different, it's got more of a casual style and I love the wool detail on the collar. 

It's £65 on the Topshop website which means it will probably be around €100 here :( I'll just have to see if I can save up for it before it sells out and considering I've barely got any hours at work this week and next week it doesn't seem to likely.

The weather has totally changed here in the last week, it's gone from being sunny, dry and warm to being cloudy, wet and a bit chilly. The change in weather has gotten me a bit excited about Autumn clothes. I've never been too into dressing for Summer and I get sick of it quickly.

17 Review and Swatches

I love expensive brands like MAC and Urban Decay but being a student who only works at weekends I can't afford them very often. So I'm always on the look out for cheaper brands that are as good as the expensive ones. One of my favourite cheap brands is 17, sold in Boots. Their products seems to always be under €10 and  a lot of them are €5 or less.
